Below are Julia’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.
Julia Michry was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Her love for art and design started early and by the fourth grade, she was enrolled in an art school for gifted students. After graduating from high school, Julia studied at the Saint Petersburg Art and Industry Academy (MYXA), one of the country’s best art colleges. Continuing her studies when she came to America, Julia earned her BA in Graphic Design in just three years from New York’s School of Visual Arts. She worked as graphic designer in publications like Fortune, Saveur, Garden Design, Fitness, People, Rolling Stone and many more, winning over 25 awards in leading graphic design competitions.
As a graphic designer, Julia never gave up her true love of traditional art. Making the necessary time to hone in on her skills and desire to focus on painting. Her medium is watercolor, and while her work reflects a deep love of nature, it is also rooted in Julia’s Russian background. Julia’s use of colors and patterns is reflective of her heritage and adds another element to her paintings.
My favorite medium is watercolor. It is an unusual way that I use it though, with lots of details. I love I really like trees in the winter when you can see every branch, they are beautiful and elegant. I know a lot of people think of them as dead in the winter, but to me, they are sleeping and getting ready to bloom next spring. It’s all about beauty and promise.
